Forest Capital of Canada Tree-Planting Blitz!

This year, the Canadian Forestry Association, with help from the Canadian Institute of Forestry and their provincial tree-planting partners, will plant more than 10,000 tree seedlings across Canada. Of those trees, 5,300 will be planted in the greater Whitecourt area in Alberta, as part of the ongoing Forest Capital of Canada 2013 celebrations. The event, a one-day tree-planting blitz will be sponsored by the CFA as part of its management of the Canadian component of the Batesville Living Memorial® Tree Planting Program. Other partners in this year’s Whitecourt-area tree-planting blitz include Millar Western Forest Products Ltd., which will donate the seedlings and supervise the planting, the University of Alberta’s Department of Renewable Resources, whose forestry students will conduct the planting, and Woodlands County, which helped select the planting site.

The trees will be planted at a new recreation site being developed just north of Blue Ridge, approximately 35 km east of the town of Whitecourt on June 22, 2013.

During the Haiti Earth Summit weekend (April 19-22, 2013), the country formally launched the Maya Nut Initiative, part of the Billion Tree Initiative for a Green Haiti, a Haiti Ministry of the Environment tree planting campaign. Initiatives like these give hope for lasting change in Haiti. Click here to read more about the Earth Summit.

Brinkman & Associates Reforestation Ltd. shared in the Haiti Earth Day Summit celebrations this year. The company’s long legacy of reforestation provided a vital platform from which to share some of the lessons learned through the years with Brinkman’s One Billion Trees campaign in Canada and in the tropics with Haiti.

We here at the CFA believe that the reforestation work done by Brinkman and Associates is inspirational and invaluable. Take a moment to cruise through their informative website!
